•Is Socialism Biblical
•Biblical counseling axed from Ky. Juvenile Dept.
•Review Genesis 13:2-6 ‘And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver and in go. For their substance was great’
•Abram and Lot had so much cattle, and silver, and gold, they had to split up because the land wouldn’t hold them and their stuff!
•Sounds like wealth accumulation to me.
•Genesis 30 gives us Jacob’s financial plan to become wealthy with selective breeding of cattle. These men made good financial decisions and invested their money wisely.
•Vs. 43 ‘and the man increased exceedingly’
•Genesis 36 tells about Esau’s riches. Vs. 6-7 ‘And Esau took…his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob. For their riches were more than that they might dwell together;…and the land could not bear them because of their cattle.’
•Do these stories sound like these people only had enough to barely get by? NO!
•They accumulated so much they had to move to large areas of land and split up their families because ‘the land couldn’t hold them’.
I guess this qualifies me as a ‘Prosperity Gospel Preacher’ huh?
